414 Words2 Pages

Nowadays, couples get married simply because they believe that they are truly in love and they do not consider the many prerequisites that are needed to have successful, lengthly, and enjoyable marriage; personally I know individuals who some may perceive as being “young and foolish” because of the fact they rushed into marriage at such a young age (18) and as a result, as they further matured, they realized that their early unification had minimal meaning or substance at the root of their courtship. In Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” (published in 1813), there are multiple illustrated marriage plots to provide emphasis on the several relationships between the characters who seek romance. The five main presented relationships are between Elizabeth Bennet & Fitzwilliam Darcy, Jane Bennet & Charles Bingley, Mr. & Mrs. Bennet, Lydia Bennet & George Wickham, and lastly, Mr. Collins & Charlotte Lucas. Many readers will believe that this novel presents society at the time as being extremely judgmental or prejudice towards women, based on their courtship status, which ultimately reflects their social status. The tittle alone reveals two out of the several themes that structure the entire novel; some of the other apparent themes in the novel include love, class & reputation (which are related), and obviously courtship.
